Challenge

Adolescents in the indigenous community of Nayar live in a vulnerable situation in terms of school dropout, extreme poverty, drug use and delinquency. This is due to the lack of access to quality education and the difficulty of transportation. Young people have to travel 3 to 5 hours to reach the cities where there are schools. Given this problem, adolescents do not have the opportunity to continue their studies, prosper and overcome the aforementioned problems.

Solution

We will provide them a middle and high school near them with dormitories and a dining hall, thus solving the problem of transportation. We will provide integral education, which means they will learn school subjects, but also life skills such as critical thinking, negotiation, emotion control and values such as honesty, responsibility and discipline through our artistic and sports academies. They will also have a vegetable garden and farm to learn sustainable agriculture.

Long-Term Impact

The completed project will educate 400 adolescents per year, allowing them to continue their studies, overcome their poverty and obtain better opportunities. We will also reduce negative indices such as school dropouts, delinquency, drug use and extreme poverty, which are problems associated with the lack of quality education. The purpose is giving them an opportunity so they can improve their life and communities through our education which guides their leadership.
